《今日靈修默想》:「總要警醒禱告,免得入了迷惑。你們心靈固然願意,肉體卻軟弱了。」(可14:38)
默想一:在你信仰的歷程上是否也經常出現「心靈固然願意,肉體卻軟弱」的狀況?有多少次立志為善由得我,卻常常是行出來由不得我。如何勝過這來自撒旦的工作?感謝主,祂知道你我的掙扎及無力,因祂做過人,也面對過你我所面對的問題,祂深知得勝的武器是什麼?就是儆醒禱告,不間斷地禱告,不可灰心的禱告。
默想二:撒旦為什麼在各處瘋狂地進行破壞、製造恐怖、迷惑眾人?因爲牠知道基督要再來,牠的時日不多,就像死亡前的瘋狂。但基督徒不必驚慌,主耶穌已應許說:「凡靠著祂進到神面前的人,祂都能拯救到底,因為祂是長遠活著,為他們祈求。」(來7:25)祂的同在是直到世界的末了。
禱告:感謝天父,因袮的慈愛永遠常存。我得承認自己經常軟弱跌倒,勝不過自己的脾氣、個性、嗜好、壞習慣,求祢赦免。求袮幫助我,我願謹守每日與袮的相交,藉著靈修來塑造自己的靈命。主,我也要盡自己的本分經常為子女、家人、團契、教會、國家、執政掌權者禱告。奉主耶穌的名禱告,阿們!
《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mar 14:38)
Meditation one: Do you often experience “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” in the course of your faith? How many times I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. How to conquer the work of Satan? Thank the Lord. He knows your and my struggles and powerlessness because He was in flesh before and also faced the problems that you and I have been facing. What is the weapon of victory? It is to watch and pray, continuously pray, not give up praying.
Meditation two: Why did Satan frantically try to destroy, terrorize, and deceive people? That is because it knows that Christ will come again and there were not too many days left. It is just like the insanity before the death. But Christians need not to be panic. The Lord Jesus has promised, “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them” (Heb 7:25). He is with us always even unto the end of the age.
Prayer: Thank Heavenly Father, for Your loving kindness endures forever. I have to admit and ask for Your forgiveness that I have been often weak and fall, can’t conquer my temper, my personality, habits, and unpleasant behaviors. May You help me, and I will keep my daily fellowship with You to mold my spiritual life through spiritual meditation. Lord, I also want to do my part to always pray for my children, family, fellowship, church, country, and those in power. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
